I am looking to purchase my first handgun. I am looking at a 9mm as I would like to get involved in a local IDPA club, plan on shooting a lot, would like the gun to double as a home defense gun, and my wife has expressed some interest in shooting a pistol. Concealed carry really is not an issue as I live in Illinois. Would like to stay under $600 and am considering the following:
Glock 17, SA XD9, S&W M&P9, will look at a Ruger SR9, and have found what appears to be a nice Sig P6/P225 for half the price of the rest. Only thing I don't like about it is half the capacity of the others. Would love to hear what y'all think.
